Jacob Escott General interest
Biomedical Science OER Features:
These OERs are three photographs of acrylic artwork created by student Jacob Escott. The fact that a fine artist is inspired by the human body and biomedical science is not a new concept. Early artists such as Andreas Vesalius born in 1514 studied dissected human bodies as an inspiration to his artwork.
For those interested in similar work and seeing how the world of arts and biomedical science are invariably intertwined, I would recommend visiting the Wellcome Collection on Euston Road in London. If you cannot reach London, there are a host of images on the Wellcome website.
